Thanks bunches, John . . . getting out there where I know my place in the web of life RIGHT NOW!
 
21C, episode 10: Synergy

"In a network, we love to figure some thinks out and move forward."
@johnkellden

Synergy
"Behavior of wholes unpredicted by behavior of parts."
-- Buckminster Fuller    http://goo.gl/WIsZ0m

I will add slightly tweaked definitions here below (based on a slightly different grid) towards providing a bit of a wiggle room, between the old, increasingly obsolete coordinate systems, and the emerging 21C Topologies in which we will be better able to live, move and have our being.

The yellow tent in the below image, is exactly as cramped, and/or exactly as roomy and accomodating for up til 9 bn people, as our imagineering would have it.

The generative sequence:

behavior, imagineering, will(skillful, mindful), attention(fluid, discerning), behavior(adapt, exapt, adopt), performance(imagineering)

This movement can be mapped through a 2x2 (game)board.

All this is great fun to enact whilst immersed in an adventure, starting from a Base Camp, being part of a Team that successfully achieves a trek and a climb, arriving at the next tent, at C1.

Such an enaction is always and already an enaction of a different topology, a gridwalking.

Learning something new Every Blue Moon!
 
Look up in the sky tonight to see a ‪#‎BlueMoon‬!
A blue moon is the second full moon in a month and only occurs once every 2 to 3 years. This is where the term 'once in a blue moon' to refer to something uncommon, comes from.
Did you know there's also a black moon? This is the second new moon in a month. It's not talked about as much because you can't actually see a black moon.
You probably know the phases of the moon pretty well, but are you aware of the various theories for how it formed? Check out these moon theories and let us know if you think the Earth's gravity captured the moon, it was made from the remnants of a Mars sized object collision, or something else entirely: http://bit.ly/1LVuED1

Somebody say, AMEN!
GREAT IDEAS CHANGE WORLDS

Re-thinking education . . . where do honoring natural insights, inner wisdom and intuition come in to this ?
 
 Very true, but the education system in recent decades have demonstrated total incompetence with our children !

A hidden gem, great people, good, home cooked food. It is a sit down diner with outdoor seating, too. Great place to enjoy a dock side morning all year long.

I had a flat tire while dropping my son off as an intern for the Sun Moon Farm CSA on Thomas Road in Rindge. The whole staff was kind and helpful, they let me hang out until the right tire arrived from their supplier and even shared their fantastic, fresh, everything bagle! You guys are the BEST! Let me know when the picnic table is up by the pretty stone walk :-) ~RA from Delaware
